Afropunk Festival is an annual arts festival that features music, film, fashion, and art produced by alternative black artists. AFROPUNK celebrates the collective creative actions of the individual and growth to move the culture forward. It is a two-day event that showcases music, art, conversation, and community building.

The Afropunk Festival began in 2005, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York. Afropunk Festivals have also been held in various major cities, including Atlanta, Paris, London, Brazil, and Johannesburg, South Africa. The festival was co-founded by James Spooner and Matthew Morgan, and grew out of the 2003 documentary titled Afro-Punk which studied black punks across America.

Afropunk is much more than a music festival, it’s a celebration of culture and the very people behind shaping that culture. The festival’s conceptual roots are based on carving out space for alternative black youth to thrive and reclaim the roots of Rock & Roll within the white punk subculture.

Though Brooklyn is the original home base, Afropunk is now global with festivals in Atlanta, Paris, London, and Johannesburg.
